Accessing Drain Plug on RadiatorThe proper name for the radiator drain plug is "petcock". It's located at the bottom of the unit on the driver side. It's plastic, take's a 1/4" square or an Allen to turn, turn a 1/4 turn then pulls (not easily) straight out. Oring seal, probably should replace that. Careful going back in, the guide pin broke on me trying to turn it a little too far.

Where is the coolant drain plug on the engine block of a 1997 Honda Accord LX 4-cylinder?

The Coolant Drain Plug for a 1997 Honda Accord LX 4cyl is at the bottom of the Radiator on the left side, if you were facing the Vechiel. It if stock it looks like a Black Medal Wingnut, unless different Drain Plug was put in by previous Owner. The block drain is an 8mm plug next to the oil filer on a 94 Accord LX 2.2L. 94-97 might be the same. There is a 10mm plug near the oil filter also, but it contains oil... I know. I have tried to remove my coolant block drain plug but without success so far... It is torqued! hw

Where is the coolant drain plug in a 94 Chrysler Concorde?

It's where you'd expect, at the bottom of the radiator in a corner. On the engine side of the radiator. It unscrews counter-clockwise, same as a bolt. However, there are supports in the way with only a small access hole, and the drain fitting is made of plastic, easily broken. Replacement fittings are available, but it's a hassle. It might be far easier to just remove the lower radiator hose.

How do you find the torque converter drain plug in a 1993 ford crown Victoria?

Sorry, as far as I know there is no drain plug for the converter. According to the service manual, the drain plug is located on the converter assembly. Just looked at my spare transmission from the 93 Grand Marquis and I can see the plug on the converter assembly. Turning the assembly will rotate the drain plug to the converter housing access plug which is visible from under the vehicle. Hope this helps.

Where is the drain plug on a 1999 Chevy Venture mini-van?

Drain plug for coolant is at the lower left corner of the radiator, facing backward toward the engine. The area is almost inaccessible to ordinary tools due to the cross-car beam immediately behind it, air conditioning piping nearby and the lip of the radiator retainer structure that is part of the front assembly (known in the industry as a grille opening reinforcement, or GOR). The plug is a small plastic insert with a flat tab. Be wary of this! The plugs often seize and the tab can be broken off far too easily. Some shade-tree mechanics avoid messing with the drain plugs at all, preferring to remove the lower radiator hose instead.
